We thought this cake was awesome served straight from the slow cooker, topped with vanilla ice cream. Drizzle some chocolate syrup over the top for extra fudginess.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl.

    Advertisement
  • Whisk peanut butter, sour cream, butter, and boiling water in a large bowl until thick. Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in chocolate chips.

  • Generously coat liner of a 6-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread batter evenly in slow cooker.

  • Whisk milk, white sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract in a small bowl until smooth. Pour over batter.

  • Cook on High until sides of cake begin to pull away from liner and appear solid (the center will still be soft), 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Cook times can vary widely with different slow cookers, so be sure to keep an eye on your cakes. They also cook faster around the sides. To heat evenly, use oven mitts to lift and rotate the liner 180 degrees about two-thirds of the way through the cook time.

The cocoa dissolves faster in warm milk than milk straight out of the fridge.

First time making a dessert in the slow cooker and what came out was fudgey gooey peanut butter goodness. At an hour and a half it hadn't quite pulled away from the sides but the center was only barely jiggly and we like it on the gooey side so it was perfect for us. Note- I could have gone for a stronger PB flavor but that's what happens when it is made into dough maybe I will add chopped PB cups instead of the chocolate chips next time (or both;-). Read More

I thought this cake was fabulous! We ate it warm with a dollop of whipped cream. It was moist but not soggy as I had feared. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Meh.... Made this dessert for the family tonight. Couldn't really taste the peanut butter burnt edges soupy in the middle. None of us were impressed at first but then we scooped it onto a pile of vanilla ice cream then it shined it was delicious! I wouldn't eat it alone but it is a scrumptious ice cream topper. Read More
